Frankly I deserved and earned my summer off. So if in a few weeks I want to complain and whine, I will. I worked harder during my pre reqs to get all my co reqs done early too, so I could have my summer off.

Not too much complaining from me. Fall break for thanksgiving then Winter break. My mindset is the sooner I get done with my BSN the better and then the REAL learning begins :)

To those who took the summer off. Don't come asking me to help you study for that test you where told we would have the first week of class 2 days prior. Oh and yeah I worked 2 full time jobs, have 2 kids, a hubby and STILL managed to study daily. So no I will not become your best friend all the sudden when you haven't bothered to try and talk to me since the final. :devil:

Sorry, just had to vent.

I worked my tail off to get a 4.0 in every one of my prereqs so that I had a chance of getting into my school of choice (which I did!). So, like Mi Vida Loca, I earned my summer off. I've enjoyed every minute of it!! Sorry for those that did not have the summer off, I know what that feels like because I had classes all last summer. I hope that those of you that spent your summer in the classroom at least had a chance to get to the pool or take a long weekend trip camping. Take a breather before fall semester begins. Good luck all!

Are there not a lot of quarter students around here? I don't have the chance to "earn" my summer off...NS runs year round.

I just finished my prereqs in April, so I went year round getting those done. My NS starts next week and I'm in an accelerated BSN program. So, yes, my NS is year-round as well, just haven't started yet.

I wasn't given any choice in the matter. Our program doesn't run through the summer. I'll whine if I need to, though it is unlikely, since whining isn't really my way of coping with things.

I too worked hard for my grades, with kids, job, spouse and other issues and obligations. All I have to finish are my nursing classes now. And school will be intense come Fall whether I had the summer off or not. It isn't as if I was given the choice to do some of it ahead of time. :shrug:

I spent my summer working an externship at the local hospital. So...yeah. Not a whole lot of lounging around the house days happened here anyway. I finished co-req's ahead of schedule and now am able to network for that first job. I honestly think the implication that those of us who weren't in school during the summer are somehow slackers is pretty incendiary and rude.

I will soon find out what youre talking about.. the NS im transferring to in January goes through the summer, but were done a semester earlier! I am sure it sucks to be studying your a$$ off while your friends are going to the beach and having all their summer fun. :crying2:

Here we go again with the "I have a 4.0, have four full time jobs and a gaggle of kids and I still had a life." Well, good for you. The drama never ceases, even in the summer.

LOL, Im just pathetic. I only took A&P 2 this summer , have 4 kids but no job and I can barely cope. I tell ya, most people on these boards can run circles around me. I really need to get it together before NS begins.

Wow, not sure who stepped on your toe this morning...I'm assuming you're referring to my post since I said I got 4.0s in my prereqs. What you don't know is that I don't have a job OR kids, I still had to work my tail off to get those grades. I can't imagine going to school full time, with a job and kids. I have incredible respect for those that do. I'm not sure what "drama" you're referring to, but it seems that maybe you're trying to stir something up with your comment.
